From the point of view of a consumer that typically uses a PC for surfing the web, checking email, listening to music and watching videos, I consider that the Haswell i3 processors currently represent the best value for money. The i3-4130 has a performance profile that is just 7% below the top nine group leader average yet it only costs half as much. Power users that play intensive 3d games or run video editing, graphics design or CAD packages will benefit from more than two cores and will do well to look elsewhere but for regular users overall responsiveness will remain largely unchanged regardless of how much more is spent on the CPU. (My new value pick is the G3420 which supersedes my recommendation of the i3-4130.) [Sep '13 CPUPro]

The AMD Ryzen 7 1700 is the least powerful of three new Ryzen 7 CPUs. The 1700 model has base and turbo clocks of 3.0 and 3.7 GHz respectively. Both of its more expensive siblings, the 1700X and 1800X, have higher clocks but they also have TDPs of 95 watts whereas the 1700 is rated at just 65 watts. Comparing IPC between Ryzen and Kaby Lake shows that Kaby Lake leads by a maximum of 9% which is great news for workstation users as this allows the 1700 to beat Intel's 6850K in multi-core workloads at almost half the price. Although the 1700 has great IPC it's somewhat limited by its relatively low (by Kaby Lake standards) clock speed which holds it back a little in both gaming and desktop workloads. For multi-core workstation use, the Ryzen 7 1700 represents the best value for money we have ever seen. [Mar '17 CPUPro]
